I don't like BB,i prefer Blackberry

Actually,i don't work on saturdays,they're spent doing me.But today i had something i was supposed to take care of at the office,though i realised that when i got home last night.Hence,i wanna crack you up a little.

Why do people always want to 'feel among'? Why do people like 'fronting'? I live in a city where there are lots of 'fakers',yeah,Port Harcourt (PH) city is the city i'm talking about.Here,you'll meet lots of funny people (we've got amazing sets too though).People who can't afford three square meals a day but still go to bars where they buy a bottle of beer for as high as 300 to 500 naira.Did i hear you say 'fakers'? You definitely are right.I moved to Port Harcourt in october 2000 and in all that time i've still held that value i was brought up with (don't pretend to be what you're not).I am thesame 'real' person i was when i was still in lagos and even all the peers i have in PH couldn't change me (i'm very stubborn and determined,so it's definitely gonna be hard to influence me).

There's this hilarious story i heard sometime ago (it prolly wasn't real but it sure portrays what is obtainable in PH) that really cracked me up.Two friends were gisting,and one was like "I don't like BB,i prefer Blackberry".I'm laughing even as i type.Jeez,that is funny! What the hell is the difference between BB and Blackberry? You know,it was her fault that she goofed (if the story na real o) because she was trying to feel among.You are not what you are not,even if you tried.Lots of people these days want to use Blackberry,but a very large number of them do not know how to operate it.I can bet you a million dollars (i don't have it now though) that over 60% of them can only 'ping' and make calls but not entirely operate the gadget itself.They cannot tell you the specification of the gadget,they cannot tell you the functions,they cannot just operate the gadget! Then why buy it?!

However,this isn't just about BB or Blackberry,it's generally about being real.Why try to be what you're not when what you are is amazing? The problem is that lots of people do not believe in themselves.They believe being themselves isn't good enough.They believe being themselves won't give them the kind of friends they want or take them to the kind of places they want.Well i've got news for you,if your being your self isn't good enough for your friends,then they're not the kind of friends you should be hanging around.If being yourself isn't going to take you to places you want to go,then you definitely are not supposed to be in such places.There is nothing like being oneself.It is the identity you have that make people envy you.I don't go around pretending to be an 'ajebota',i go around making people know i'm a hustler.I work for every dime i have and spend.People just don't know what they are,so they go around putting up a facade and fooling themselves.But if they knew they were awesome and have great potentials,they'd definitely not indulge in 'fakeness' (if it's not in the dictionary,i just added it).The fact that you're not somebody now doesn't mean you'll not be somebody in the future (except you're a lazy bone).I don talk my own finish,lemme go back home and enjoy the rest of my weekend.Have a very pleasant weekend ahead people!

  5. Helen: You really cracked me up with your comments.And here's ur shekesheke *shesheshesheshe*! It's a good thing you're not a faker and it's definitely allowed to go with the flow,but you should not fake (they're two different things).If you wanna get a BB,you should go ahead and get it,as far as it's not for the wrong reasons.Goodluck with that though and thanks for stopping by and also for the comment.
